Detailed Description

The New-CMInstallationSourceFile cmdlet creates an installation source file for Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. An installation source file is an object that contains installation source parameters for a secondary site installation. A secondary site has no System Center 2012 Configuration Manager database of its own. Instead, it forwards information that it gets from clients to a primary site that stores the data for all the secondary sites that are attached to it.
